QUETZALCOATLAlso known as QUETZACOATL, TLAHUIZCALPANTECUHTLI
The famed Aztec Feathered Serpent GodQUETZALCOATL's brother is XOLOTL and his mother is Top Goddess COATLICUE. He helped create the cosmos and instigated the system of universal death and rebirth. Think wind rippling through grasses and foliage, green plumes, feathers, scales.
QUETZALCOATL ruled the Fifth World Cycle and created fifth-generation humans by sprinkling his blood over the bones of the previous tenants. Of course the bones first had to be rescued from MICTLAN, which was no easy task as MICTLANTECUHTLI was playing finders-keepers.
QUETZALCOATL brought culture to mankind and also agriculture. But most importantly, he brought chocolate!
